GO-MAP Graduate Diversity Fellowships & Awards

GO-MAP is committed to supporting underrepresented minority students throughout every aspect of graduate education, including academic, financial, professional, and social support.  We work with various partners to ensure graduate students that have been admitted to the University of Washington are given ample opportunity to succeed.

Please note:

  • GO-MAP funding is allocated mostly based on departmental nominations.  Individual student applications are required for only two of the twelve award categories.  Please contact your department's Graduate Program Advisor (GPA) for more information on the nomination process or for additional departmental funding opportunities. 
  • Due to the state-based funding GO-MAP receives, students in fee-based programs are only eligible to be nominated for Graduate Supplemental Awards.  They can also apply for the Latino/a Scholars Graduate School Fellowship if they meet eligibility requirements.  To check if you were admitted or are enrolled in a fee-based program, please contact your department or review the Fee-based Degree Programs list >
  • International students and students enrolled in professional programs (School of Dentistry, School of Law, School of Medicine, and School of Pharmacy) are ineligible for GO-MAP funding. 

GO-MAP encourages the nomination of underrepresented minority graduate students who have achieved academic merit despite significant social, economic, and/or educational challenges (i.e., first generation or those whose educational training has not exposed them to a wide array of resources).
